The update is free to download, but of course, you'll want an Adobe Cloud account to really take advantage of everything Adobe offers.

Adobe pushed out an update for Lightroom Mobile on Android today, saying that its app is now fully Android-native. If you have the specific types of iPhones, you will be able to use 3D Touch with the Selective Brush. You can use the Selective Brush on a lot of different things as well in the Adobe Lightroom iOS update. And for iPad Pro users working with an Apple Pencil, you get the same capability-press harder to apply more of the effect, or softer to apply less.


The update, which brings Lightroom Mobile up to version 3.0 on Android, also adds general stability improvements to the app, so if you were having issues before, there's a good chance they'll been ironed out. There is also a new ability to selectively erase linear and radial gradients, improving their usability during selective edits. For more information, see the Lightroom Journal Adobe blog post below.

It's not uncommon at all for developers to bring apps to Android, or any other mobile platform, with a design that, well, doesn't feel very native on that OS.


There was a redesign to the iPad version, which will allow you to make the most out of your large screen. The entire experience has been redesigned from the ground up to be faster and more familiar for Android users.
